Paralaurionite

ID: CC16910
The rare lead chloride Paralaurionite, from Torr Works quarry (aka Merehead quarry) at Cranmore in Somerset, is a much sought-after British species and this is a striking example. A 1.6 x 0.7 cm area of pale lemon-yellow Paralaurionite with a subtle satin lustre sits in a vein system of white to colourless Calcite within a matrix of sooty-black manganese oxides. In LWUV the Paralaurionite fluoresces faint dull yellow and in SWUV, duller yellow and the Calcite dull pale red. A very good Paralaurionite from Torr Works quarry, Somerset.
